Pre Covid kids love to travel to snuggle with grandparents and spent a lot of time at Sports Park trying to avoid ER visits....
Post Covid, kids still adjusting to Zoom with family, enjoy trips to the coast or Bear Valley area.. less crazy on bikes and scooters, but continued love for water sports, hiking, cooking, making messes, losing socks and shoes, writing on walls, and causing general kid ruckus...haaa
SVTT has been a great social avenue for our family and we look forward to continued social and networking events.
